The Nihewan Foundation is dedicated to furthering the education of not only Native American students but also non-Indian people who seldom have a chance at learning with us or about us.

Buffy founded the Nihewan Foundation for American Indian Education on the basis of her love of teaching, her belief in Native American potential, and her newly found financial success in the music industry.
